Well this is my first blog and I would like to write to you about tattoo's. Some people think tattoo's are for the lower classes. Why?
People used to think that tattoo's are not for the elite, due to that the first tattoo's were seen only by people who got them in prison. So people would think, you have a tattoo so you must have done time. But luckily nowadays it's more normal to have a tattoo and it's used in multiple ways. I got my first tattoo last november and I absolutely love it!
Unfortunaly tattoo's were also used for bad things. For example, in the Holocaust they would tattoo numbers on prisoners in the prisoncamps, so the prisoners could be indentified by their number. A lot of prisoners lost hope because of this, because they no longer were a person but just a number.. So sad.
Luckily their are also good ways of using tattoo's. For example on the show on TLC, were they preform coverups. They was a old lady that had a mayor scar on her chest, due to that she lost her breast to breastcancer. The lady was in her late 70s and I was so impressed. This was her first tattoo, but she wanted it to cover up such a sad story. She was incredibly strong and I was really inspired by her! How amazing is it to leave behind a terrible situation by cover it up with a incredible artwork?
What are your thoughts? Do you have/like tattoo's or not?
